War and Peace is a novel by the Russian author Leo Tolstoy, published serially, then in its entirety in 1869. It is regarded as one of Tolstoy's finest literary achievements. The novel chronicles the French invasion of Russia and the impact of the Napoleonic era on Tsarist society through the stories of five Russian aristocratic families. Portions of an earlier version, titled The Year 1805, were serialized in The Russian Messenger from 1865 to 1867, then published in its entirety in 1869.
Yeah, Tolstoy's that perfect house guest who crashed on your couch for nearly two months and you're just thrilled as hell the whole time to have him visiting, because he's just such a smart and great and interesting and heartfelt guy. Quel raconteur! Oh, sure, sometimes he gets a bit dull and wonky with his policy ramblings, but that stuff's basically okay.

Tolstoy describes the wars, and in particular the battles of Austerlitz (1805) and Borodino (1812) in vivid detail and apparently very accurately from a historic point of view. The characters of Napoleon and Kutuzov (the Russian army leader) take active part in the narration, with the lesser leaders (Bagration, de Tolli, Davoux) also getting enough attention to build a complete and interesting story. The characters in the book are various and present the different ideas Tolstoy tries to infuse into his narration. They are all, without exception, extremely believable and well developed.
Leo Tolstoy's War and Peace is an epic novel. In the start of the novel we are introduced to many important characters very quickly at a party. The novel starts in July 1805 in Saint Petersburg, at a party given by Anna Pavlovna Scherer – the maid of honor and close friend to the dowager Empress Maria Feodorovna. A large number of the fundamental characters of the novel are presented as they enter the party.

War and Peace (Penguin Clothbound Classics). I am very glad I read this novel. It was a great effort. I certainly do not feel it is the greatest book I ever read, not even by Leo Tolstoy. But it is a great work
